“According to our information, the Russians occupy the leadership positions of the “republican bodies of state government”, “bodies of the military administration of the operative and tactical level”, command positions of particular detachments. Besides, the regular Russian military officers are the military advisors, instructors, commanders of the detachments of the military and operative provision. Their number estimated as over 2,000 people,” Nayev said.
According to him, the tendency for the decrease of the presence of the regular Russian military men in Donbas is observed; however, “the Russian officers and general make the core of the command staff from battalion up to army corps”.
Serhiy Nayev emphasized that the Russian military men “consider the “trips” to the east of Ukraine as an obligatory stage for their promotion”.
Earlier Nayev revealed the most dangerous spots at the demarcation line in Donbas.
As we reported, since the beginning of April 16, illegal armed formations attacked Ukrainian outposts in Donbas five times. On four occasions, the enemy used Minsk-banned weapons.
